Non-conference Clemson Basketball Schedule Released - Clemson Tigers Links

The athletics department released the non-conference Clemson basketball schedule for the 2014-2015 season and it’s a little… underwhelming.

The home schedule includes high-major opponents Rutgers, Arkansas and Auburn in three consecutive contests. Rutgers comes to Littlejohn Coliseum for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Dec. 1, while Arkansas and Auburn visit on Dec. 7 and Dec. 14, respectively.

Scott Keepfer of The Greenville News has a story on offensive coordinator Chad Morris’ thoughts on one of Cole Stoudt’s greatest advantages with taking over the starting quarterback job.

“It’s one thing to have the same head coach for four years now in Coach (Dabo) Swinney, but when you can say that your offensive side of the football has not had to see a new (coaching) face or learn a new name in four years, that’s remarkable in this day and age,” Morris said.

Nikki Steele at TigerNet writes about the circumstances that led to four-star athlete Ray Ray McCloud choosing the Clemson football program over Florida.

Speculation surrounding McCloud’s decision came to a head last week when the McCloud family visited Florida for Friday Night Lights, and the prevailing thought was that his last visit occurring in Gainesville was a good thing for the Gators.

Not so fast, according to Ray McCloud, Jr., who said that he tempered his son’s enthusiasm and made him take extra visits to ensure that Clemson was the right place for his talents.

C_Craft at Shakin’ The Southland details the worst calls to go against the Clemson football team in the last 35 years.

One topic that comes up among my Clemson friends from time to time is the work of the ACC officials. It doesn’t take long before the term “Cherry Bomb” comes up and we rehash some of the most egregious calls we’ve seen in our lifetimes as Tiger fans.
